AFL-CIO endorsements

Posted By on Tue, Aug 24, 2010 at 1:10 PM

The Arkansas AFL-CIO has announced endorsements made at its convention Saturday in Hot Springs. As I wrote earlier, the group gave no recommendation in the U.S. Senate. It's a Bronx cheer to U.S. Sen. Blanche Lincoln for abandoning labor on labor reform legislation.

Bobby Tullis, the Green Party candidate for state treasurer, says there was a sharp and close division before the group decided to stay with an endorsement of incumbent Martha Shoffner.

There's at least one Republican on the list, Jimmy Bryant of Conway, who's running for state representative against incumbent Rep. Linda Tyler.
